about

a.P.A.t.T.'s full album entitled 'Black & White Mass' (Pickled Egg) is from the very outer limits of what pop music can be whilst being filled-to-bursting with sheer entertainment value that earned it ‘Album of the Week’ on Radio 1.


"To hear a.P.A.t.T. or more specifically their ‘Black & White Mass’ full length is to experience a musical odyssey like no other, avoiding the usual pragmatics of pop, they are a law unto themselves dabbling in sounds.‘Black and White Mass’ is THE first crucial full length of the year somehow I don’t reckon it’ll be topped in our affections though be warned it’ll do your f**kin head in."
- Losing Today about 'Black & White Mass'


From 2008's Capital of Culture comes the full-length second album of this zany collective known as a.P.a.T.t. a.P.a.T.t. outwit and outperform most other bands. 'Black and White Mass' kicks off in twisted cabaret fashion, but with all the pieces still falling together as they should. In grand circus style, the second track fetches you onto a.P.a.T.t.'s weird magic roundabout. Little heavy metal ghosts, or gremlins if you'd rather call them, take hostage of this track. And such is the red thread to 'Black and White Mass' -most tracks build the setting for a duel of sound and style.

The few straightforward tracks dotted around on the tracklisting for the album then catch the listener by surprise. With spectacular ease a.P.a.T.t. grab from a barrel of catchy guitar riffs. One moment you feel as if you've stumbled into a gig of a Mersey Beat band, and the next you imagine yourself in a Pink Floyd time warp. They're a bunch of jugglers really. And each time, they attempt to whistle you into a lull and then make you fall into their traps. This should be Alan Davies' favourite album.
